  1. HI, are you sure that the motors are the same in all X8S series?
    I already have a gopro and I want to mount it on the X8SC since it is the cheaper one and since i don´t need FPV. Do you think it is a good choice or I should go to the x8HG since i read that the have more powerful motors which can handle the extra weight of the gopro? Thank you
